new season under way Friday night
as the spikers held their annual Blue-
White scrimmage at Rec Hall. The
White squad, led by Head Coach Tom
Toit, captured a 3-1 victory over the
Blue, coached by Assistant Coach
Tait mixed the lineups, using differ
ent combinations in each of the four
games to allow the team to get com
fortable with each other as it pre
pares for a mid-November clash with
perennial power, USC.
The scrimmage saw just one in

According to Tait, Yarros, a junior,

Feelies and Balls evoke enthusiastic crowd response
By NATALIE NICHOLS
Collegian Arts Writer
Friday night’s Feelies concert in
the HUB Ballroom, sponsored by
WPSU-FM, was rather deserted, with
a crowd of only about 100 people. I
think the low attendance was due not
so much to a lack of interest as to the
fact that many of those who would
have attended were instead grooving
at the R.E.M. concert in Pittsburgh.
The small crowd that did show was
enthusiastic, and most enjoyed both
the Feelies and their special guest,
the Balls, immensely. Thus, this re
viewer was in the minority on some
The Balls, a Philadelphia band, got
things started with the loud but me
lodic music of Jim Stager (bass),
Steve Maglio (guitar) and Dave Ei
senhower (drums). Maglio explained
before the show that the group is
influenced by artists such as the Meat
Puppets, the Replacements, Jimi
Hendrix, the Beatles and the Velvet
Underground. This background
showed itself often in the Balls’ reper
toire of mostly original, basic
Dressed casually in jeans and tee
shirts, the Balls’ members opened the
show with an original called “Full
Circle.” They seemed a bit shy with
the audience at first, but warmed up
almost immediately, sometimes
making corny comments throughout
most of the set. This familiarity was
probably due to their previous en
counter with a University audience
two weeks ago, when they opened for
The Balls really heated up with

number featuring some strong guitar

Sometimes concert-goers lose sight

It is possible that this happened at

Perhaps it was the Lion’s crushing
victory over the Crimson Tide that
caused the restlessness among the
crowd. But even that is no excuse to
be disrespectful to master musicians.
The first interruption came after
the beginning movement of the open

thought that Wolfgang Amadeus Mo
zart’s Quartet No. 17 in B-flat major
was over, applause prematurely
erupted before the piece’s end.

One of the best ways to enjoy this
concert was to close your eyes and
just listen, because if you constantly
watched the stage you became dis
tracted by the contrasting

instruments. Canadian violinist Peter
Oundijian was like a tidal wave
among choppy waters. The precise
movements of the group’s three Japa
nese members violinist Kikuei
Guitarist Maglio burned up his instru
ment, playing so fast that his fingers
blurred. He picked a few riffs with his
teeth and still kept true to the notes
and timing. Cheap showmanship,
maybe, but impressive nonetheless!
The Balls also covered the Replace
ments’ “Favorite Thing,” and ended

Ikeda, violist Kazuhide Isomura and

refined compared to Oundijian’s.
But these movements became ir

brilliantly performed by the quartet,
their sound being extremely clear
and exact. The first and last

By using expert vibrato, the quar

but its music was good, strong
rock’n’roll all the way.
The Feelies featured songs from
their recently released second album,
The Good Earth, in their perfor-
“Adagio,” sound like a sweet, melan
choly ballad. The performers’ deli
cate touch proved that music does not
have to be played loud to be exciting.
There is something about Soviet
music that has haunting undertones,
as exemplified by the second piece on
the program, Dmitry Shostakovich’s
Quartet No. 7 in F -sharp Minor, Op.
108. The composition brought out
each instrument’s unique character
istics instead of blending their sounds
together, as in the Mozart piece.
At first, some parts of this piece
sounded harsh and grating, but then
the instrument’s voices came togeth
er, and the sheer endurance of the
players was fascinating. Although
this piece had three movements,
there was no pause between sections.
Keeping the emphasis on the
senses, it is interesting to note that
the last piece the quartet performed
was written by a completely deaf
Ludwig van Beethoven at the height
of his musical career. Beethoven’s
contrasting ideas and the compli
cated variations on a theme in the
“Grosse Fuge” and “Large Fugue,”
indicated the master at work and
gave the quartet a chance to display
their independent playing. The musi
cians’ give and take in the extreme
dynamics of the piece created a
swelling sense of line.
Although more music followed, the
end of the “Cavatina” section would
have satisfied as a finale, as the

The Feelies, in contrast with the
jovial Balls, took up their instru
ments wordlessly and maintained
silence through most of their set. The
group opened with a ballad-like, folky
rock tune, “On the Roof,” followed by
"The High Road.” Both songs were
home-grown, American folkish rock,
reminding me of wheat fields or some
other kind of midwestern scene.
"Original Love” was a more haunt
ing, darkly melodic tune, which gave
me an intensely creepy feeling. Here
Mercer’s voice reminded me most
strongly of Lou Reed’s.
The group’s cover of the Beatles’
“She Said, She Said,” was a slick
version of the original, with a ma
chine-gun drum line and a little bit of
psychedelia in the ending.
By the fifth Feelies song, I knew I
was in trouble. AIL around me the
audience was having a great time,
cheering and applauding enthusiasti

dering, “is that all there is?”
The band members stood on stage
woodenly, not smiling or recognizing
the audience, not speaking at all. A
trivial complaint, really; some
groups don’t like to banter. Well, all
right, but I still felt like some spark or
energy was missing. The Feelies are
good musicians, they play well and
tightly. Their music is not in any way
bad. But it is much the same thing
again and again, and after a while I
grew uninterested. Still, I tried to
keep an open mind.
The group’s “Two Rooms” was a
haunting, introspective song, fol
lowed by “Slipping into Something,”
which changed tempo abruptly from
lazy ballad to frenzied guitar mad

The two percussionists provided a
steady, in-synch beat throughout
“Last Roundup,” which sounded like
a twisted Western ballad. Demcski
and Weckerman used a variety of
instruments, including drums, tam
bourine and a hollow wooden instru
ment of some kind, providing
interesting rhythm through the set.
A song called “Crazy Rhythms”
reminded me strangely of a song
called “Summer In the City,” by the
Lovin’ Spoonful. It was a roughed-up,
ragged, helter-skelter kind of tune.
The Feelies ended the set with that
song, abandoned their instruments
and escaped off-stage to the back
balcony of the ballroom. The audi
ence would not let the band get away
that easily, however, and soon the
Feelies were back, performing “I’m
a Believer” and “Sedan Delivery.”
Again the quintet vacated the
stage, and again the audience de
manded more. The Feelies returned a
final time to play a medley of Velvet

“European Son” and “What Goes
I don’t know what I was expecting
that made me feel so much like the
concert was a disappointment. Part
of it was the homogeneity of much of
the Feelies’ music, part of it was my
perception that the group lacked en
ergy and spirit. I overheard someone
say that the group has often been
compared, unfairly, to R.E.M., but
one of the first things I thought was,
“they remind me of R.E.M.”
The Feelies arc not bad musicians,
and they certainly were popular with
the audience. The concert was well
performed, but the music often
seemed mediocre to me. All I can say
is: different strokes for different
